No Woodson claim for teen shredded in machinery (access required)

Woodson claims are notoriously difficult to win. Just ask Cornelius lawyer Christopher Mauriello (pictured). On Tuesday, the N.C. Court of Appeals rejected a Woodson claim put forth by Mauriello's client, the brother of a teenager who was killed while loading wooden pallets into a shredding machine where safety guards had been removed to increase productivity. "If this is not a Woodson claim, I don't know what is," Mauriello said. "The only way to have a Woodson claim is to have a client named Woodson who gets caught in a trench collapse."
